Chevrolet has released a video teaser for the upcoming premiere of the new Corvette Z06, a more powerful version of the eighth generation Corvette.

In addition to the digital dashboard, the car will feature a carbon-trimmed steering wheel and new seats with increased lateral support and integrated head restraints.
Finally, towards the end of the video teaser, the manufacturer showed another version of the Corvette Z06 – an open-top variant.
